Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

I have experienced what appears to be a side wall failure of a Firestone light truck tire. The failure occurred shortly after entering the highway at a speed of approximately 65 mph. While accelarating down the entrance ramp I noticed a vibration coming from the rear of the truck which stopped once I merged onto the highway at about 55 mph. At that time I thought the vibration was due to rough pavement on the entrance ramp. A short time later, possibly 3 or 4 miles, the driver side rear tire blew. There was a slight loss of control as the rear end of the truck felt as if it were sliding from side to side. The truck noticeably leaned to the left. The exterior sidewall (facing the outside of the truck) of the tire had separated entirely leaving only a small ring of rubber around the rim of the wheel. I'm concerned that this is the type of failure that has occurred with other Firestone tires. When I bought this truck I was told by the dealership that these tire were safe.
